Summary

These data were analyzed for the publication 'Accounting for sampling patterns reverses the relative importance of trade and climate for the global sharing of exotic plants': Aim: Exotic species’ distributions reflect patterns of human-mediated dispersal, species’ climatic tolerances, and a suite of other biotic and abiotic factors. The relative importance of each of these factors will shape how the spread of exotic species is affected by ongoing economic globalization and climate change. However, patterns of trade may be correlated with variation in scientific sampling effort globally, potentially confounding studies that do not account for sampling patterns. Location: Global. Methods: We used data from the Global Biodiversity Information [...]

Purpose

Data represent information associated with countries worldwide, including observed and estimated richness of plants exotic to the US in each country, and information on trade, climatic similarity, and other measures. These data are appropriate for exploratory scientific analyses.
